The current dominant framework of sustainable consumption and production (SCP) is defined by a myriad of United Nations-driven and corporate-inclined fora that focus on SCP as the process of 'decoupling economic growth from resource use.’ While the definition of ‘SCP-as-decoupling’ or as a circular economy is not fundamentally defective, it remains lacking as a strategy because it does not put people’s rights at the heart of production and consumption, and fails to recognize another fundamental element — state and corporate accountability.

This module aims to contribute to existing knowledge on SCP pulling from people-powered initiatives that challenge the status quo and identify targeted engagement spaces that can help communities and advocates re-shape the SCP discourse.
